Usually I dedicate a chunk of time during the summer to writing projects: finishing, editing, revising, submitting. This summer writing has taken a back seat to my dealing with healing. Typing with my left hand, mainly my left thumb while my right hand passively observes, is not conducive to getting a lot of writing done. There is a deadline of 10 pages by August 21 I’m gamely trying to meet.
So–I get sidetracked. One of my more diverting diversions is looking up words on dictionary.com and I came across these quotes of encouragement. Hope one of them rings true for you:
A fine one-thumbed post, my friend.
My favorite quote comes from Harper Lee:
“I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide.”
Haha–that’s a new one. Is that a teensy embellished?
I don’t think so, but I did get it off the internet. So maybe.
Yes, the trustworthy Net. *scampers to verify*
So sorry to hear about your hand! That is such a bummer.
Love the inspirational quotes, especially…”Writing is nothing more than a guided dream.”
Physical therapy has started. Ouch! But it is healing–thanks
